1) How did you first get interested in erotica and capturing the beauty of a woman nude?
I started photographing nudes at university and loved it so much that I became a pin-up photographer for men’s magazines in Australia. At university I was sleeping with alot of different women and quite involved with the gay scene so I believe everyone has a bisexual side and it’s fantastic to provide a place where people can explore the many facets of their sexuality.
2) How did you come up with the idea to start up your own erotic website?
I was frustrated with dealing with narrow-minded mainstream publications that would often use degrading language to accompany my pictures. I was shooting alot of hard-core sex anyway (just for fun and just because I was there). So it was logical to make the transition and go into an online adult site. Where I would have complete creative control.
3) What is your favorite thing about running your own site?
I love collaborating with the models on shoot ideas, themes, styling, and naughty activities. We work very closely and intimately and I try very hard to portray the girls honestly and sincerely. I like introducing the girls to new forms of bisexual play and kinky ways to make love to each other. I become friends with many of the models as they keep returning for more shoots and to explore their bisexual tendencies.
I love making new friends and interacting with the girls and the devoted members. Girlsoutwest is about building an online community – it’s really fun and feedback is what keeps me aspiring to greatness. Communicating with members and models on the forums is a fabulous platform for sharing stories and ideas. And everyone feels involved and part of the team because their input is often implemented immediately.
4) Your work covers a variety of themes what is your favorite?
I love the girl/girl shoots. I either introduce girls from the site or models bring their girlfriends/flatmates along for a bisexual experience. It’s always fun working with 2 girls and trying new sexy things. Often the girls are making love to another girl for the first time (which is a beautiful thing to watch).
It’s always gratifying when a really shy girl arrives for a shoot and leaves having had the biggest most unexpected orgasm. Because there is only myself shooting the video and photos the girls feel very comfortable and relaxed and it’s so easy for them to orgasm live on camera.
5) Describe your day on the set of a shoot.
The models generally meet me here at girlsoutwest HQ. We have a chat and talk about ideas and they show me what they brought along for the shoot. Then we get on the forums and say hello to the members and write about what naughty things we plan to do. Once we get to a location (either indoors at HQ or at the girls own house or someplace outside) the cameras start rolling and I shoot the photos first. Then I shoot the video in a slightly different location with a candid introductory piece to camera at the beginning and a sexy undress before the hardcore action takes place.
I actively communicate with the girls on camera and this encourages some dirty talk and frankness that is rarely seen in mainstream sites. As they are amateurs they don’t act they just are natural in front of the camera. Sometimes they tell true stories about lesbian love and make confessions that will shock you. After the shoot we try and get on the forums again and tell the members what we did, how we felt about it and our level of arousal.
These days I include a video of “Out-Takes” which consists of bloopers, misdeamenours, funny moments, of behind the scenes footage which is humourous and revealing. It’s candid and shows you what really goes on during the making of amateur porn.
6) You have shot thousands of women. Does it ever get boring?
I have shot thousands of women during my 10 years as a photographer. Every woman is different and brings her own ideas to the shoots. I find by giving the model input into the creative side of a shoot this ensure every shoot different. I don’t shoot to one single formula. I prefer to work spontaneously and outgrageously and just let the moment dictate what happens. That could be public flashing, intimate lesbian confessions indoors, to masturbating in bed or using a double-ended dildo or strap-on for the first time.
7) What sets your site from other similar sites?
girlsoutwest is entirely female run and operated. There is no man behind the scenes telling us what to do. We express ourselves uniquely without fitting to a small neiche. Whatever turns the girls on is what happens. We might try scissoring, or cunt grinding, or use a double ended dildo, or the girls might want to french kiss and finger each other. It’s always a sexy experience because the girls dictates what’s going to turn her on.
Your site is one of my favorite and I am sure a favorite of many others. Why do you think your site has been successful when so many others have failed?
I am not obsessed by making money. I just want to be naughty, wild and free and give the girls a place where they can express their sexuality. I believe if the girls are having fun during the shoots then the members are going to be getting off watching us.
What’s special about girlsoutwest is the underlying humour, and porno parody. We are not the same old bullshit that is everywhere on the internet. We’re smart, sexy and savvy. and often multi-orgasmic!
9) What are your future plans? Where do you see your self and the site in 5 years… 10 years?
I want lots more girl/girl action and maybe some threesomes and even an orgy is planned for the future. I like the idea of growing bigger and am striving to improve all the time. Girlsoutwest is and will continue to be a really cool site that is full of sex positive energy where the girls are getting off and exploring their sexiness.
I want to continue working on front-end stuff and back-end stuff and keep evolving the site into something really unique and not like anything else on the internet.
It’s the punk attitude and personality of the site which is addictive and contagious. The girls love this site and the members love looking and interacting. It’s one big team really
